Art Quilt- Pansies and Butterflies in Blue Purple- 11x13 Wall Art


Art Quilt- "Pansies and Butterflies" 11"x13" Wall Art in Blue and Purple by Sue Andrus. This work of textile art is composed of a grouping of Spring Pansies in shades of blues and purples, with several butterflies flitting about.

The applique flowers and leaves were made from various die cut fabric shapes that were enhanced with colored pencil, paint, embroidery and machine thread-work. The faces on each Pansy flower are stitched with black thread, the centers are French knots made with a yellow shimmery rayon thread over pearlescent paint. A thin wash of the pearlescent paint adds the lighter accents on the flowers as well as a bit of shimmer to most of the butterfly's wings. The largest butterfly has sheer organza added to it's wings for even more shimmer.

The leaves are stitched with a variegated green thread to give definition to the veins. The hand painted background is stitched with a clear thread in a swirly design resembling the paths the butterflies would take while fluttering around. The border of ivory has been stitched with leaves and swirls using a pastel variegated thread. The piece is bound with a variegated yarn in shades of blue.

This is a unique one of a kind artwork that can be displayed by framing, mounting to artist canvas, or hung on the wall as it is. This would be a perfect gift for a nature lover, gardener, or a newlywed couple to decorate their home. This is a Spring Garden that will last through all the seasons.

This piece has no sleeve or hanging apparatus on the back. If you would like, I can add a hanging sleeve so that the piece can be hung on picture hooks with a dowel or wooden slat (not included). Please let me know at the time of ordering if you would like the sleeve added at no extra charge.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

After purchasing a die cutting machine which is made for cutting paper, I have been experimenting to see what fabrics I can cut using the dies I got with it. With a little practice, I am able to cut a number of pieces that are becoming harder for me to hand cut do to arthritis. It has been fun to see just how many different ways I can use these shapes to create various realistic or fantasy flowers and gardens.

With my fabric I can garden in any season or weather. These works of art will brighten any home, bringing in the beauty that nature has to offer.

Materials Used

cotton fabrics, fuseable web, yarn, threads, pearlescent paint, die cutting machine
